    Answer:

    x = -17

    y = -68

    Step-by-step explanation:

    x – y = 51

    y/x = 4  so we can say that y = 4x

    using substitution:

    x – 4x = 51

    -3x = 51

    x = -17

    find ‘y’:

    -17 – y = 51

    -y = 68

    y = -68

    check:

    -17 – (-68) = 51

    51 = 51

    -68/-17 = 4

    4 = 4
